“Betty White defeated me.” … me too!! It’s breaking my heart!!



Betty White defeated me.

If you’ve been here more than twice, you are probably aware that I don’t like what we call in the business “obituary cartoons.” And even when I do draw them, I try not to use the pearly gates or Heaven tropes. Even in a week with some very high-profile deaths, John Madden, Arch Bishop Desmond Tuto, and Harry Reid, I didn’t draw an obit cartoon. Though I did consider drawing one cartoon featuring all three of those people, I was in Washington, the Ghislaine Maxwell verdict had just come in, and I didn’t feel like doing it. But, you would have liked it.

Betty White — She Will Live On In Our Memories

Ms. Betty White … our own treasure!! Rest in Power!!

Ms. Betty White …. “💔 ‘What Can I Say?’ I Have No Words’ 💔 …. “!!

~~January 2, 2022~~


I know, I know … she was 99, she had a full life.

Yet, it’s sad to see her go.. The gap she leaves behind is unfillable.

Even though there are many memories, much dicomentation of her work, her being, her demeanor, her kindness … even though she will live in our memories, she will be terribly missed.

I know I will!
